More details of case released in proceedings

Gary Loudermilk
More information was released Wednesday about an unusual charge filed against a Center Point man.

The Clay County Prosecutor's Office presented information in Clay Circuit Court early Wednesday morning about the class D felony charge formally filed against Gary G. Loudermilk, 31. If convicted of a class D felony, the highest charge filed against Loudermilk, is punishable with six-months up to 3 years in prison and potential fines up to $10,000.

Indiana Code 35-49-3-3(2) is the felony charge of Dissemination of Matter Harmful to Minors is the act of displaying "matter that is harmful to minors in an area to which minors have visual, auditory, or physical access, unless each minor is accompanied by the minor's parent or guardian."

On Thursday, an anonymous caller(s) contacted the Brazil City Police Department about a man allegedly displaying pornography inside his vehicle in plain sight of visitors at Craig Park.

Upon arrival at the park, officers found an empty vehicle parked on the access road within walking distance of the playground area. Several pornographic magazines were "standing in plain sight" where any passerby, including children, within an alleged 10-12 feet could see the pictures.

As part of the charging information presented in court, the numerous magazines of pornography were described as depicting "photos of nude male genitalia involved in homosexual (sex) activity."

When advised of the potential consequences of the charges, penalties and his legal rights, Loudermilk told the court he understood and entered a not guilty plea with the statement of, "I didn't do anything wrong."

Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout appointed attorney Geoffrey Creason to act as counsel in the matter, which was tentatively scheduled for July 19.

Bond was set at $7,000 with 10 percent allowed and, if Loudermilk is able to bond out, Trout issued conditions of he obey all laws, appear as ordered for all court proceedings, and sign a "waiver of extradition" immediately upon release from jail. Due to the nature of the allegations, Trout also added the condition that Loudermilk shall not have any access to any public park in any county, municipality or city within Indiana.

According to officials at the Clay County Justice Center, Loudermilk bonded out Wednesday afternoon to await further court proceedings in the matter.

freedom1-if you don't like it here-move away! This town is no more "nuts" than any other town. Actually, the town itself is NOT nuts-it's some of the people. No one will be upset if you leave! Post your negativism somewhere else. Good job BCPD! Get the scum off the streets!

-- Posted by millertime on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 7:45 AM

millertime... ARE YOU SERIOUS!! I mean come on. I have never heard something so absurd in my life. This is outrageous. First of all in my opinion the anonymous caller(s)invaded this guys privacy by looking into his truck and next I can't believe this is being taken as far as it is. Maybe when we go to the polls this should influence our decision on voting. It's time for a change!

-- Posted by Innocent on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 8:29 AM

I was born and raised in Brazil and resided within the community for 33 years and I can't believe what I am reading! It is this type of attitude that puts our children at risk on a daily basis. The potential for acutal harm is pretty great here. We ALL know there is more to this story than what we are reading! Standards need to be set and exceeded along with a good moral foundation for any community to thrive. Instead of being so critical of your police department, (who by the way, took an oath to protect each any every one of you on a daily basis), try setting a higher standard for your community and the citizens who reside within and get behind these hardworking individuals and show your support. I am sure if one of your loved ones were violated in any way from this individual or any other person(s), you would be the FIRST to call law enforcement and demand that something be DONE!!!!

So.... if something like this was found at home...(for whatever reason, we all know kids can be snoopy) and a child's friend was staying w/ the child whos parents have that sort of thing in their home... and the friend goes home to tell their parents.... does this mean that these people get arrested to?? Seriously, I think we have a lot of other things to worry about, rather than what is in someone's vehicle....really... there are children getting pregnant at 13. If people are concerned about what is harmful and not harmful for their children... I think they need to sit at home all the time, and BPD needs to find all the drug dealers, and put them away. I would rather pay my tax money to someone in jail for drugs, to keep drugs off the street, than someone who had something PERSONAL in their vehicle....hmm... Brazil gets more an more intersting everday!!

-- Posted by tsl2010 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 9:15 AM

You kind of hate to let your mind wander into some of the possibilities as to why he was there with that material. He could have been there for a nice walk at the park with his or someone elses obscene mag's left open. That's bad enough as it appears to be a crime, but about any other possibility just gets worse.

-- Posted by brazilian on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 9:36 AM

Brazil does get more interesting every day, and so does this story.

IC 35-49-3-3(2) again uses the word "displaying" which would mean "to reveal or show with the intention that something be seen." If a person is carrying, legally, a concealed handgun in a shoulder holster with a sport coat or jacket on and the front gapes open from normal movement to reveal it, it is not being displayed as if the person intentionally opened the garment to show it to someone.

Now, the story and the comments have started to get a bit muddled. In comments on the other story, it was said that the magazines were on the floorboard and here they are "standing in plain sight". The type of vehicle has not been confirmed here.

Yes, law enforcement officers do take an oath. I'd have to check, but I'll bet that it is to protect the Constitution and the law and not the public, certainly not the individual. The United States Supreme Court has ruled and ruled, time after time, that a law enforcement officer has no "duty to protect" the individual. Also, you do not have to research very much to find cases and instances where an officer somewhere has used their position to break the law. A person cannot say that something like that cannot happen here.

I'm hoping that all of the facts are presented in court. It is not illegal to own this type of "art", and I use that term loosely as I hold a very definite opinion that such is not worth looking at, but in society today owning such is almost as dangerous to oneself as owning a pet cobra. I mean, if you throw it out in the trash and it happens to land on the top, you may well face charges of "displaying" it.

Innocent-I think you need to reread my original post, because obviously you missed my point and are confusing me with someone else. And freedom1 when you do nothing but complain about the problem, you start to become part of the problem. Put your words to action. Support the town we live in.

-- Posted by millertime on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 11:03 AM

Leo L. Southworth, remind us all again which law school it was that you attended. Or as someone else posted, jack of all trades, master of none?

-- Posted by I. M. Lee Thall, Esq. on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 11:31 AM

TSL2010 posted my thoughts before I had the chance. Sorry to those who think this guy is some "perv" waiting to abduct our children .. you're wrong. The facts speak for themselves .. problem is, the BPD (or the Times) seems to print varying degrees of their version of what happened.

On the floorboard, with the porn, at the park. If someone saw it, they were snooping around this poor guys car and had no justification for calling the police!

Of course, if there were TRUE pervs hanging out at the park (and they do), then definitely call the police .. but not for something as ridiculous as this. Sheesh!

Indygirl - it's best you stay in Indy. After all, no perverts there.

-- Posted by Emmes on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 11:47 AM

OMG!!!! How can anyone stand in defense of this guys actions. What do you think his next move was going to be? He was displaying this trash to attract young people to his car so he could eventually take this to the next level.

Great job BPD!!

-- Posted by jddriver4960 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 12:43 PM

My opinion is just because someone has porn in their home or car does not make them a pervert and second yes, he made a mistake by putting it in sight probably on his front dash etc but no one is free of mistakes in their life so why judge others. I agree the police should be cautious about this stuff because predators do go to parks. I however dont agree with people making judgements assuming they know he is a predator etc. Everyone makes mistakes and this was a dumb mistake i am sure he will learn from. I have seen porn mags on peoples dash before and i didnt call the police because its not my business. Yes, it shouldnt be in the dash but who i am to judge .If you seriously think your kids will never see porn or any type of naked person you are in dream world because its everywhere from tv to internet and even cell phones have internet.

-- Posted by mom of3 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 12:48 PM

You are all a bunch of uneducated dorks! Yes, the man had porn, gay or not...he had it in the park, where children often go to play, hmmmmm....why was he in the park???? Isn't that where most molesters like to hang out to prey on innocent children. Thank God I am just a transplant to Uncle Daddyville and not a natural born inhabitant!!!

-- Posted by clgruener on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 1:16 PM

Jdddriver...ya that was his intentionns completely! I'm glad you know sooo much about this case that u could actually call out "what he was going to do next" you have no idea about what your talking about so keep your "are you people serious" to yourself until you know a little more about what your talking about For your 411 he wasn't using nething to attract people to his car...RU SERIOUS!?

-- Posted by bombshell on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 2:04 PM

OK, lets get the updated FACTS we are now aware of straight before people start mouthing off! (Pardon the potential graphic nature of my reply, but I just believe the following needs said.)

#1. How does a magazine STAND IN PLAIN SIGHT? You just made the point about why this man was arrested! Apparently some effort would have TO BE MADE in order to make the magazine stand up, and if it were standing up on a floorboard or in a seat, it wouldn't have been seen from a distance of 10-12 feet. Personally, I think that shows intent. It's not private if you make sure people see it!

#2. Why print that it was GAY PORN? Well, whether you like it or not, odds are more people (adults) could be offended by this type of photographic display than a man and a woman. Also, with the possibility of children in the area, how many parents sit down and discuss their attitudes about homosexuality, not to mention what constitutes homosexual sex (which is what was on DISPLAY to potentially see) with children of ANY age? BTW, television in this country, while it is lowering its standards to violence, sex/nudity and language, is still considered prudish compared to other countries. However, you might see two guys/girls kiss, but NEVER do we watch REAL sex acts on regular TV!

#3. Facts muddled? Reread both stories, because NO WHERE does the paper say this porn was laying in the floor. Our fellow comments started that "factoid." It just states "lying," which could have technically been laying anywhere, and might have been what they were told. That is why the first sentence in the story says MORE information was released.

#4. Corrupt police out there just waiting to dump gay porn in someone's vehicle and going to the polls to vote for change because this SOMEHOW involves the election. Read the story AGAIN people. Cops weren't in the area, they answered a report and apparently enforced an unusual law.

FINALLY, if there were bias by the paper, I don't think they would have included this man's reply to the judge in the story. It makes him appear to have a defense that he didn't know what he allegedly did was wrong.

This story, if people actually comprehend the charge, is educational because we know now what not to do with porn. As for the man charged, yes, right now is terrible for him and his family. But lashing out at people (whether they sympathize or not), the newspaper or the legal system won't fix anything, you must fight the legal problem. Fight, win and then make sure people learn the truth about this man to remove the stigma certain members of the public will enact.


God speed to everyone involved in this case.

-- Posted by Cy on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 2:07 PM

Uneducated dorks?? I know this man, yes he had a porn in his that had been there forever. Believe me he didn't just put it there to take a trip to the park! Stop confusing gay people with people who like little kids.

-- Posted by bombshell on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 2:08 PM


-- Posted by bandmom_63 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 2:12 PM

So now I get the point.....so if the car had a bunch of Harley Davidson decals on it, and lying inside was a copy of Easyriders, negligently tossed in the back seat and opened to the centerfold pic of a good looking lady, then what would have been the outcome? And what if the owner of the vehicle was a female Harley rider? Does that make her gay? You cannot even think of labeling someone like this, or jailing them for "what could thjis lead to" as we have supposedly progressed further than that in our civilization. Hey, it (homeosexual behavior) was good for enough for priests, Emperors, Kings and Queens and just about everyone up until just a few decades ago. Check history.

-- Posted by Mumbles on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 2:16 PM

I don't know this guy but IMO, this guy was up to no good. Why would he be sitting at a park with pornographic material, especially porn displaying men? I wouldn't want him anywhere around children!

-- Posted by th1953 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 4:28 PM

I would like to think the paper put what kind of porn it was because of all the comments on the original story but I don't think it matters. How hard is it to cover the magazines or slide them under the seat? Yes, it is his business what kind of magazines he chooses but show some consideration for others. I agree he should have been warned the first time especially if he didn't do it on purpose. I guess I can drive around down with no pants on since it is my car and people shouldn't be looking in. (that's too scary of a thought though!!!)

-- Posted by Familyof6 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 5:30 PM

what dose it matter on the porn it was in his car he wasnt in the car

-- Posted by renee1 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 6:11 PM

I completely agree with Leo L. Southworth and unless you know him and the real story nobody can really judge. I can't beleive you think he was trying to lure children when it clearly states he was taking a walk and nowhere near his car or the porn or the playground or kids -duh-. There was no reason for the paper to state what kind of porn it was or make it seem like hes a horrible person. This is going to stick with him for a long time because people in this town are such drama queens its rediculous. This town is so much different from when I was little. It's nothing but drama and drugs and little teenage boys who think they 're in some big brazil gang and if you ask people who haven't lived here thier whole life they will tell you they've never seen a town like this!!! And the BPD from my own experience seems to do what they want to because I was at Craig Park with my nephew and an Older man back by the waterfall talked obscenely to my nephew and the police came and did nothing. He said to write the paper and complain because the guy was a city worker. And this guy gets arrested for this???? I know they have certain laws to protect but I have called and talked to 2 different officers and asked the same question and one told me completely oposite of what the other one did...so it depends on who you get

-- Posted by SKCC on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 8:50 PM

i think the "anonymous caller" might have severe issues regarding the content of what he/she saw based solely on the fact that it was homosexual oriented pornography and not heterosexual. i have live in Brazil most of my life and never have i encountered a more discriminating place. i agree that Mr. Loudermilk should have used forethought and concealed his "art" before leaving for his walk, especially when there were kids around, but the extent to which his case was taken seems a bit severe. if he were a straight man openly displaying nude females and straight porn (tattoos included) would he have been treated so poorly by the justice system here? i feel that his attorney should contact the local chapter of PFLAG in Terre Haute and the GLAAD organization to see if they might be able to help, IF Mr. Loudermilk is being treated unfairly and unjustly.

-- Posted by kanamekuran77 on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 9:23 PM

OK, I do love how the times took it upon themselves to state what they believe is his preference.In my opion and I live in the u.s.a. so I can state that(You can too Leo-Tell em to BITE YA)

DO YOU PEOPLE NOT FEEL YOUR RIGHTS ARE IN JEOPARDY?? Hello I'm an out spoken girl and I've been known to talk a little smack but I know when to watch what I say.But honestly if a friend of mine had a porn of any kind in their vehicle. I'd look at it and BS about it. Who am I hurting if it gets left open on the set of the car? Keep your nose out of the car and no harm.

This guy has just as much right at the park as we do. This person that reported it is a real piece of work. If your such an outstanding citizen why not come out so you can take your bow for saving the children of this town?Unless you made a false report.Are you holding a little somethin for Gary? And again I say our rights are being infringed upon.If you don't watchout it could be us next.

-- Posted by Cardonia Redneck on Thu, Apr 29, 2010, at 10:37 PM

I am so sick of hearing about his rights. He broke a law. He got caught. That's the end of it. If you speed and get a ticket are your rights being infringed upon? Absolutely not. If you rob a store and get arrested are your rights being infringed upon. No! And it really bothers me that you guys care more about this perverts rights than the fact that he was looking at gay porn at the same time he was looking at kids playing in the park then proceeded to the woods for "pleasure". Come on, really? lmao at say it loud

-- Posted by jm3611 on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 9:00 AM

jm3611 First of all that is disgusting and you weren't there so you cannot say he did that. He broke the law? Just like that one girl said if my kid went to another kids house and went snooping through a parents bedroom and found porn from everything that article said that means that parent could be arrested? Because some nosy Brazil-billy snooped through this guys car and he had HOMO porn now his life will never be the same because no-one in this town has a life!!! And that brings me back to my nephew having an old man ask him for favors at Craig park and nothing was done about that?? So who's to say what the law is besides BPD???

-- Posted by SKCC on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 9:35 AM

I don't get how people can compare this to Speeding,Robbery,honestly some of these scenerios are wild. "It was Magazines" that is all. Now I compare that to someone leaving a T-shirt on their car seat with a saying on it that most wouldn't like.Life is full of things your not gonna like so get over it and get on with life DUH? Everyones Kids Are Very Important YES. But if you(meaning anyone)are so blind to think this is what is going to be the ruination of kids in this town O.M.G. are you so wrong.If he has no priors it was bad judgement.And hell most of this town already has him guilty.His life is so screwed now from some out standing citizen crying wolf.Open your minds alittle bit and take it for what it is.Instead of what you as paranoid parents want it to be.

-- Posted by Cardonia Redneck on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 10:56 AM

SayItLoud-Jm3611-There is an old song I think of when I read your post"FREE YOUR MIND" or is it "OUT OF YOURS"?? thinking of you don'tcha know.(hope I have a fan)

SKCC I am sorry that happened to your nephew.Now-a-days thou hun if it were me they'd probable been calling the cops on me.Because I'd done did an Indiana beat down. Cowgirl up girl in any situation even BPD isn't going to be there in time.As you grow older you are gonna understand.Your either the preditor or the prey.

-- Posted by Cardonia Redneck on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 11:35 AM

I can't stress it more HE WAS NOT IN HIS CAR LOOKING AT PORN!! He was in his jogging gear doing just that!! When you speed, you know you are speeding, when someone robs a place, they know what they are doing. These actions are done taking a risk and being completely aware of that. This mag was on his FLOOR not posted in his windows, and he wasnt anywhere near his vehicle"watching children and lookingg at porn" if you think about it how does that even make sense?? Your saying he was looking at both? Gay porn and little kids? So he would be looking at the porn for what reason if he was stalking out the kids at the park which we know..well most of xcept JM up there so pay close attention so your next post isn't so ridiculous..there were NO kids involved in this but..."there could have been". Humm...

-- Posted by bombshell on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 11:41 AM

First, I am amazed that some people have no problem with the porn in a truck or car. No one carries their porn around in a car. Unless they have some sick need to read porn in a park where children play. A poor moral choice.

Nude sculptors have made their mark all over Europe.But its not porn, as in the sculptor did not make public statues of sexual acts between two men or two woman or man or woman in public parks that I know of.

So in my opinion for what its worth, your car is full of alot of things personal, and pretty much say who - you are.

If you saw a guy walking around the park and his car had duct tape,rope,a knife,and a cute little body bag-would you report it to the police? It does not matter to me what its doing there,it's questionable isnt it? But, thats not my job to figure it out. That is what law enforement is all about, and if they stopped a crime before it happens? I say "Well Done" to that anonymous caller and the police who checked it out.

The local newspaper reports the facts. Sorry if you dont like the facts. Thats all it is, facts.

He may have just came from the Kroger parking lot, or his church parking lot or Leap Center. In any case, your car is indeed as public as your wardrobe. This man made a statement with his vehicle, so do you, when you put a flyer in your window, when you put fancy seat covers in your car. It isn't a crime to put porn in your car? I think I disagree.

its the Judges duty to carry it out the laws, Im sure the Judge and the Police know alot of "nice guys" who were secret pedifiles,porn junky voyeirs,rapists, or some kinky sexual perversion,etc. Protect your children.

It is the Law to protect the citizens big and small, and I say thank you.

The only problem that I have with this whole thing is in the words "On Thursday, an anonymous caller(s) contacted the Brazil City Police Department about a man allegedly displaying pornography inside his vehicle in plain sight of visitors at Craig Park." If I had a problem with someone doing something that children may be exposed to, the word anonymous sure would not be a part of it. The way that it looks to me, is that someone who knew this gentleman's car saw it in the park, and walked over and peaked in to see just what they could see inside of it. After seeing the book in the car they decided that this was a way to get this guy in trouble. I did an experiment and placed some items on the floorboard and seats of my car to see if I could see them from outside of my car and I was not able to. It was not until I walked up to my car and really looked inside in order to see just what I could see inside of my car and only then could I see what I had placed in my car. If he was doing something wrong, then I am all for prosecuting him, but if this is a way that someone can use the police to play a really sick joke on him just to see if they can get him in trouble, and that is the way that it looks to me, I am not for that at all. If it was reported that there were children over by the car and they were in a position in which they could see in the car, such as on a slide, swing or something of that sort, then it is a different story, put him in jail, but where no children were involved and this person after seeing this in his car felt that it was so outrageous and traumatic to them that they had to immediately call the police, but they had to be anonymous in order to report it, then I smell a rat someplace. I wonder just how close the police had to get to his car in order to see inside of the car and spot the material. If it is against the law to have material of that type in your car then arrest him, but I hope that the people of Brazil are not using the police as pawns in order to play sick jokes on people or to get even with them for something they were mad about.

Does'nt anyone find it a bit odd that this man was looking at this material in a PARK....not the privacy of his own hom,and allegedly had it displayed,was he possibly soliciting himself?If indeed he was looking for a date is a public park the place to do it?

-- Posted by myrtle52 on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 12:17 PM

Myrtle52 I do not believe that this article said that someone saw him sitting in his car reading this material and called the police, it stated that the material was spotted being displayed in some way in his empty car. Maybe you may wish to read the article a second time but this time use your glasses in order to read it. That is how vicious lies and rumors get started.... I hope that you are not a part of this guy's pool of jurors. Nothing was stated about him looking for a date in the park, you must read a lot of those love novels.

-- Posted by photobob on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 12:36 PM

You have the right to do whatever you want to do in the privacy of your home, and anywhere, so long as you don't infringe on the rights of others!! In this case, anyone could see the display and so he exposed his private right to porn, to everyone else...

-- Posted by Pearl2083 on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 12:50 PM

Well I wasn't there but my friends daughter is his best friend so I know more than what the paper says and more than you and you sure have your opinion completely from just the paper and it sounds to me your a typical brazil-billy

Has everyone ignored the fact part of the story that said "where any passerby, including children, within an alleged 10-12 feet could see the pictures"

If you could see the pictures from 10 or 12 feet away, then wouldn't you think that would be in plain sight?

-- Posted by axegrinder1313 on Fri, Apr 30, 2010, at 4:46 PM

So now we are invading peoples privacy and becoming a homophobic community???? Someones sexual preference is none of anyones elses business that was unnecessary to print and frankly obsurd...I find it ironic the prosecutor is releasing details like this, since he himself has been wrongfully accused of being gay, which had nothing to do with his demeanor. What happened to our freedoms as Americans... make sure you have your blinds and windows covered up if you plan to have a fun evening with your mate. This is a total waste of time and money...next witch burning! This town is increasingly becoming a joke! I hope this makes it to National News, they will have a field day with it...my suggestion people start writing TMZ , Dateline

The only accusations of this man's sexual preference are the people on here who think they are doing this man justice by spewing forth their own form of venom-filled "I know better than anyone what's wrong with Brazil, Indiana."

It's not in the two stories I read ANYWHERE! That means you can go back through the comments and find out WHO started that little innuendo.

There's a long list of incorrect comment posted.

NOW people, apparently the ones who know everything about this issue, start insinuating and throwing accusations at the prosecutor (and the cops) for following the law!

HINT for those unwashed in the knowledge of trial procedures, HE IS REQUIRED BY LAW TO REPORT INFORMATION REGARDING THE CHARGES TO THE COURT, which is public knowledge to anyone who cares to go to court, listen and learn!

The saddest part of this story, is that people are throwing their own personal issues into the fray and fueling the fire of discontent without any judicial thought or consideration.

BTW: If the magazine was on the floorboard, NO ONE could have seen it from 10 to 12 feet away! MY bet is that if it HAD BEEN on the floorboard, out of sight, Loudermilk wouldn't have been arrested and there definitely wouldn't be a bunch of doltish fools posting out their arses.

There's a saying: Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise.

Where has all the rational thought-provoking wisdom gone?

People need to stop arguing and passing judgement.

I wonder what will happen when this comes to an end.

If he is proved innocent, how many of you will treat him with kindness and respect? Will you hold out your hand and say "Hello and welcome, it's great to see you got your day in court Gary!"

If he is found guilty or pleads guilty, what will those of you who are snipping at those who think this was wrong do? Will you log back in to this story and say "Oops, I'm sorry. Guess I didn't know what I was talking about."

Right now, we should be curious about what is happening, because we've learned about a law NONE of us apparently knew about before, We should also offer our support to this man and his family and friends. It has to be tough on them, and him.

And, whether you like it or not, support the authorities for doing what is apparently their jobs.

We as citizens didnt need to know "specifics" only just the fact it was porn magazines, but we didnt need to know the contents, because as adults I think we all can conclude what is in a adult magazine.

The fact that so much time, effort and money is spent on something you can purchase at the store, the fact he was not in the vehicle, the fact there were not cameras or any thing else found. The fact that we need to not let our children wander without supervision, the fact that this county has been more leinient on battery cases, child endangerment and letting drug felons off easy, that is what is making people upset. This has been taken tooooo far! Period! I think Lee Reberger is a very nice guy I only stated that it is unfair to label someone. There was no victim of this crime, it was a mistake, he was moving and had most of his belongings in his vehicle. He wasnt reading them there, he was jogging, yes he should have covered them up, but a Felony?? Come on, have you seen adult swim on toon? How many of us has had our young teen boys steal a playboy? Does that make us guilty of a FElony? This has just been blown way out of proportion. I have personally witnessed mothers walking their young children in strollers yes even infants at 2 o'clock in the morning. Is that healthy for a child either...no but you dont see them locked up for it. My mom always fight the good fight, pick and choose, there just are much more important things for brazil's finest to worry about. Sometimes I think this panel is more of a detriment than a good thing. I am very disappointed in this newspaper for adding the specific details to a moutain that started out as a moe hill. He without sin cast the first stone...

Cy.....you right on with most of that. It is not the job of the cops to pass judgement, but it is the discretion of the County Prosecutor to call BS on charges. This is where a community has the opportunity to tell the County PA that they are disappointed concerning his priorites of criminal pursuits. They (Govt. agencies) seem to keep growing their departments budgets through statistics by engaging in this petty crap. That, in turn, grows County Mental Health, Alcohol & Druc Abuse programs and so on. Wake up and pay attention at the polls.

Thank You SAYITLOUD I completely understand.It's a very heated subject.

And I believe your HYPOCRITE CRACK is from another article I commented on and I stand on that for THAT ONE.

But when it comes to someone being discusting to an adulescent yes I come a little unscrewed.If we all believe that the local PD is going to charge in and save the day everytime.Wake Up and smell the cow crap.I think if you would talk to even them you will see it is a job they can't keep up with.So for the record I REFUSE TO BE A VICTUM!!

I have had people pass judgement on me all my life.(I AM OBESE) So for GARY LOUDERMILK to have people judge him for what he reads is ODD. If he is a perv. prove it. And if it was just bad judgement think of some of the things that bad judgement will do to you or your loved ones.

I am So IN TROULBLE if they outlaw FAT GIRLS..LOL

Well tulie32, looks like your hiding behind a big bush along with most other people that comment on here including myself. You're on the comments section with a alias name slandering a concerned citizen for wanting to protect his or her children and any other children that might be in the park. Porn in plain sight in a park is just wrong, be it straight or gay. I doubt this man would have been arrested if the concerned parent opened the car door looked under the seat and found a stash of porn. The officer probably would have said "what are you doing in this vehicle if it doesn't belong to you?", and the concerned citizen would have probably been arrested. Let the courts figure it out, that's why we have them. tulie32 don't make yourself sound weird by protecting a weirdo. I'm sure they have a case or he wouldn't have been arrested.

i think everyone that posted on here should show up at the court house and sit on what ever side your post sands for so we all can see who each other realy are or may be a protest that would be fun

I think that everyone has their own opinion and that is perfectly fine...however, Mr. Loudermilk broke a law.(It doesn't mean he is a bad man....he just made a poor decision.) The police officers don't write the laws, they enforce them. Your state government writes the laws....so if you don't like them, I suggest you write letters to your state representatives. BPD I am so proud of all of you for doing your best to protect and serve the people of this community...I don't know everything your job entails, but I am sure it isn't always pleasant.BPD keep up the good work and stay safe....and Mr. Loudermilk I will pray for you and your family in this difficult time.
